Sometimes we are just plain old sick of anything that has to do with dentristy. Plus it's summer and we LOVE summer. So we try and keep busy. We are excited about our new location and have decided to get to know it better this summer. Here are a few of the things we have been up to.
Parks- We decided to try and go to all the parks we can this summer. We want to find our favorites!
Our first park was HJ Carrol it's close to our house, has a playground, a trail, basketball courts, a creek, disc gold, mountain biking and lots more. I am convinced this will be one we frequent.
While we were there I also learned that it is possible to swing with a baby in the back pack. It definently is a challenge but Titus was laughing the whole time!
Tonight it was off to discover a new park. We headed for beausite lake. I wrote the directions down wrong (and it's only 4 miles from our house). But we drove around for a long time. I enjoy getting lost though because I get to see areas I wouldn't otherwise. I found about 20 roads I wouldn't mind living on. Finally we found the lake and it turns out its a special needs camp that you have to make an apointment to go to. We didn't qualify (I don't know how I missed all that online). So we were all a little disapointed. Luckily Tyler saved the day and stumbled on another park.
Gibbs Lake. We loved it. It's a 310 acre park. Beautiful and secluded. We started off by just walking around.
They were all smiles and I can't count how many times they told me they want to go back and swim again. I want to to! After they were already wet we saw a sign saying there might be toxic algae. We washed them off good and hope that if there is bad algae it goes away quick because we really liked it there and want to explore more. I know we barely saw any of the park.
On the ride home the kids said "That park was a five star park" and it is out of five so I think they liked it.
Vegetables have been the other big thing around here lately. We joined a CSA (community shared agriculture). I have wanted to for so long but with moving we just never have. So far I LOVE it. Each week we get a couple bags of produce. Whatever is in season. It's a challenge finding recipes to use it all in but it's fun and so far the kids are really enjoying trying new things. I am determined not to waste any of it. Anyone know what to do with fava beans? Since I can't have my own farm right now I am enjoying Sunfields and so are the kids!
